“Titanfall” will launch on March 11 in North America and two days later in Europe. The title has already taken more than 60 awards at its E3 2013 premiere, including a record-breaking six E3 Critics Awards. “Titanfall” also won Best in Show awards from IGN, Destructoid and Game Informer.
In the game, players are able to fight on foot or as free-running pilots inside mech-style walkers called “Titans” to complete team missions and goals. The title is online multiplayer only, but it injects single-player elements such as plot, character interaction and nonplayer characters into its matches. Up to 12 players can participate at once.
On Jan. 15, Microsoft Director of Programming Larry Hryb posted photos and a Vine video on his blog that displayed a limited edition “Titanfall” controller, which will cost $64.99 and will launch alongside the title in March. Hryb also announced that he will be giving two controllers away to random “Titanfall” fans.
